The Bali Tiger

Bali tigers where once found on the Indonesian island of Bali. The Bali tiger was the smallest of the eight subspecies of tigers. There were eight (8) subspecies of Tigers in the world, out of which three sub species have already been declared extinct during this century - the Bali, Caspian and Javan tigers. Poaching and destruction of habitat are the primary reasons for their extinction. The remaining five species are the Siberian, Chinese, Indo-Chinese, Indian, and Sumatran tigers. The last Bali tiger to be shot was believed to be a female in 1925. The Bali tiger were extinct around the end of 1937. Fortunately, Tiger hunting was first banned in 1970, and followed subsequently by the WILDLIFE (Protection) ACT 1972. Unfortunately, this is the last known photo of the Bali tiger.
